"Susie's talents as an interior designer and construction project manager, coupled with her exceptional ability to communicate
with and understand people, made her one of our most treasured and valued team members.
She sets standards of achievement for herself,
loves to rise to a challenge, and establishes high standards for each project. She is an inspiring leader and her energy permeates all of
those fortunate to be around her.
Her role in shaping the new look of Nordstrom was critical in defining our current sales floor identity in
Nordstrom full line stores, Nordstrom Rack, and Faconnable boutiques nationwide.
One of my favorite things about Susie is she never loses her
smile, even under pressure, and makes the projects of which she is a part fun for everyone involved. We are fortunate to have been able to call
her one of ours."

"There is little in life that gets me as excited as when having the opportunity to work with people who are so incredibly amazing at what they do. And to me, amazing isn't just having talent, but it's a timeliness, energy, an ability to make things happen. . .when they decide it's time to happen.
You both bring such incredible energy to people like me. It's energy like yours that sets the tone for people like my staff.
I don't think they would have believed me if I had to sell this one on my own. but the presence, energy, creativity and talent that you brought was what
ultimately made this happen. I am now very proud to bring people to our business home.
My team can now be proud of the space in which they work and in the end,
they can continue to be their true and best selves. Much like both of you."
